This is a tourist trap where me and a friend were subjected to a series of little cons during the course of a mediocre meal. The final bill was way over the odds (maybe about 4 times the price you should pay for this kind of food) but as we had never experienced anything like this before we nervously payed... More

Panos K, Γενικός Διευθυντής at Old Ithaki, responded to this review

We are very disappointed by your review. The thing that disappointed us the most was that there wasn't really a review about any of the things we offer, neither our food or our restaurant. It was a hateful review. There was so much unexplained hate that is an almost not acceptable human behavior. This is a mistake by trip advisor,... More

As you enter the place you feel the warm & friendly atmosphere. The menu offers a wide variety of starters & main dishes followed by their delicious deserts. All the products were fresh & at a reasonable price. I had a great time there & I highly recommend going to Old Ithaki .

Walked into this restaurant by chance as one of the locals recommended it. The service was very professional, the food was amazing, very Mediterranean taste and the prices reflect well what you're getting. We had the grilled octopus in olive oil and chicken and pork skewers. A great dining experience, would definitely recommend.

This place is located by the Athens Metropolis within walking distance from Syntagma square. The view is mainly the church square. Very nice ambience inside, with discrete décor, has comfortable seats, spotless table cloths and fantastic service. We enjoyed out meal and the wine and as the portions were generous we did not manage finish everything. Order modestly.. and reorder... More

Excellent Cretan food, especially the meat dishes, meat, chicken, lamb... all are excellent. Christos, the owner's son is an excellent person and host. He personally takes care of hosts. Good value for money. Great variety of drinks, very good service. Good salads and desserts. In a quiet and pedestrian street.

Went here on a friend's recommendation. Had the Greek sampler for two which could have easily fed 4! This was our first meal in Greece and we were so pleased we chose it to be our last before we departed two weeks later. Great service - wonderful food and the live singers and music was so special. A quiet authentic... More

Had a meal here one night, looked like it should have been good but service was poor. My wife ordered a started which they totally forgot. We waited well over an hour for our main course. When we questioned where the started was they apologised and offered us a plate of marinated fish (not what we wanted) It wasn't as... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
